We are so glad we chose King's Cliff for our first stay in Ooty. A carpet of fresh grass and colorful flowers surround this charming colonial style bungalow converted into a hotel. The views from the hotel are breath taking. The rooms are done up simplistically and comfortably. The bed linen and mattress are very good. The cheerful and unobtrusive staff are helpful. A plate of just out of the oven, butter cookies are delivered to your room at teatime and were awaited, and gobbled up instantly. W... Read more

This place is a Scottish Bungalow with vintage rooms. There is a fire place with high ceilings. The rooms are named after Shakespeare's novels/characters. They have about nine rooms large enough to accommodate a family of four. The place is clean with nice gardens and the food is good.I found the breakfast cold, maybe due to the ambient temperature. Transportation is available on request. WiFi is available only at the Lobby. Overall a nice experience.

Nice place overall. Tempest room I stayed in is surrounded by the dining area and kitchens and the windows open to the drive in so there tends to be noise. Talking about noise one night there was a large party going on in the lawns and all around with loud music till past midnight. The staff are very friendly and the room and bathroom are clean and well laid out though cupboard/ hanging space is limited. Break fast was ample.

Stayed at the hotel just for a night in May 2015 but got good memories for life. The hotel has a old world charm, food is great and so is the service. The staff did its best to make us comfortable, the garden was beautiful and walking in the garden in the rain was a fulfilling experience. The breakfast spread was good enough a gentleman comes to sing at the hotel every day in the evening and all the guest gathered in the lobby to listen to him. This made us feel as if one big happy family was ho... Read more

On visiting kings cliff again after 2 years, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the place has retained its charm. The retro live music, the fireplace, the glasshouse and the story behind the place , all augment to making the dining a wonderful experience. though I found the rooms to be a little suffocating,the restaurant is brilliant!

Beautiful place. If you would like to enjoy a nice holiday in the arms of nature, this is where you should be. The crackle of the firewood, beautiful Ooty right in front of you when you wake up and to top it all off, a lovely glasshouse to keep you definitely should visit this place. The colonial structure takes you back to the age of the memsahibs and Sahibs of the British era. Lovely ambience and fantastic food. The staff are very courteous and helpful. The maintenance of the ro... Read more

Stayed for a few nights, and had 2 rooms [Verona and Tempest] - both the rooms are very close to the dining area and incredibly noisy. Tempest is a huge room, with a seating area and big bathroom. Verona however is a small room with no windows or natural light. Grounds are beautiful and you're far away from the hustle and bustle of Ooty city. That said, the property needs a love of love and care. The pathway leading to the hotel has tons of litter on both sides, and a huge garbage dump at the ... Read more

Nice property and nice location a little away from the buzz of the city. Peace and Tranquility are the prime attraction. Earl a multi cuisine restaurant is one of the best in town and have a nice selection of food. The housekeeping and especially the horticulture department is commendable. The only let down was breakfast service. Overall a nice property to stay in,

Old world charm. 150 years old property. Still managed very well. It gives you a feeling and experience of British era.Very quiet place. Little away from the main town at the top. Their restaurant ( Earl's secret) serves best of the food. never expected to get such a delicious meals at such a distance. Their signature Brownie with ice cream is a must try. Overall I had a wonderful stay there.

This massive bungalow ( with 9 rooms ,3 restaurant rooms/ and lobby with a small reception) has been well maintained and resembles Army Mess in Dehradun/ Nanital/Ranikhet ..with wooden flooring and high sealing. If you want to experience the British era or the Army Mess then there is every reason for you to stay in Kings cliff . The owners have managed to retain the regal essence of the past British era in this property .there is live music every evening and firewood lit up in each room at night... Read more

In the lush greenery of the pine trees and the heart of mountain lies a British mansion, it's rooms are named after Shakespeare's plays and the dinning room has an aura of that old British ballroom. The cuisine is continental and exquisitely served. Do dine in the garden with the view of ootty and hills behind you. The aura of British has been intimately preserved.

This is a good place to stay if travelling to Ooty with family. I personally feel that this place does not get it's share of fame & recognition. But maybe that helps maintain the calmness that goes in hand with the nippy air and serene ambience. The quietness and greenery are charming & soothing to the mind & soul!

The location cannot be better. Its actually on a cliff with practically no neighbors. So very silent atmosphere with great views from the room. Its a British type colonial structure. Unfortunately, the furniture, doors, windows etc is rickety & distastefully done. For the room tariff paid (Rs.6000/- per night) its not value for money. Also they provide Queen size bed which is insufficient if you wish to sleep comfortably or if a kid is also involved. Also room sizes are very small hence an extra... Read more

This boutique hotel is makes history come to life. We stayed in the honeymoon sweet and were tended to attentively by all staff. Whether it was lighting our personal fire or arranging water bottles for us whilst having dinner, all in all we felt spoilt and special. The other guests were sociable, making it an unforgettable experience with excellent views. Thank you!

They dont have a swimming pool, They dont have a wifi in room, They dont have a bath tub or jaccuzi. However this place will leave you elated and satisfied and even make you feel like an idiot for thinking that the prerequisites of a good place to stay include all these modern amenities. That is Kings Cliff- Earls Secret. Rather than calling it a hotel it should be called an experience. I had pre booked the room on go ibibo? And we got it at a pretty cheap rate. While checking in I askd for a... Read more

Number of people: 3 couples and 3 kids (ages ranging from 9 months to 4 years) Rooms: 2 garden facing rooms and 1 inside) Having read the reviews online we really didn't have second thoughts on choosing this as one of the place of stay for our group trip (the other being Destiny farmstay belonging to the same group which I've reviewed as well). Let me begin by saying that none of us wanted to visit ooty as in ooty city (which over the years has become super congested). Our expectation out of oot... Read more

Yep.. Its haunted i think. you don't believe me? There is something spooky about this place from the beginning. I only realized when i saw my fully charged DSLR Camera and GoPro showed battery empty in few hours even it was kept Off. Anyway this was my experience. Rest everything is Awesome. Food is tasty and little overpriced. I booked for Deluxe bungalow with fire place. Let me say the room was good in architecture wise but construction wise it not so good because its not properly insulated fr... Read more

Rooms are adjacent to a popular restaurant that exists in the property and hence its crowded most of the time. For the same price, you can stay in a resort quietly (if you prefer that) Otherwise, the rooms are ancient and bath rooms are modern. Furniture, especially the bed and mattress can be improved. We stayed 3 nights and it was okay!

We have been visiting this place for lunch for years now, whenever we stay at our summer cottage. The glass house dining and lovely lawns have always attracted the kids, so did the food. Food used to be good, but we had a not so good experience in our latest visit. Starting from the person who took our booking over phone and occupied the front desk, was stiff as a board left us wondering. The place was overflowing with bookings and it was chaotic. Finally when we were shown our table, we didn't ... Read more

Long pending review! We did not stay here but had quite a good lunch last year when we visited. Wanted to go again last week when we traveled to Coonoor but unfortunately our schedule didn't permit that. The restaurant setting was neat and the staff were very courteous. We visited during off peak season, so the speed of service was quite alright.

We loved everything about the Hotel. It is located in a beautiful location. The accommodation is superb. We had opted for a budget room -the one with no windows but we still loved it. very clean. The firewood is lit up every night. There is a tiny plate of welcome biscuits there for us. Very clean bathroom. The lounge area always has fresh beautiful flowers. In the evenings, at dinner time there is a pianist who is there playing the piano and singing lovely English songs which we truly enjoyed a... Read more

We had stayed in October. The hotel is in nice natural location. Nice food and caring catering staff though on 1st day took long time. Room a bungalow was ok not big. No nearby restaurant or market place. No wifi, Not much value for the money charged. Cut the stay duration to 1 night from 3, so could stay within city. Because of that checkout was not pleasant.

Kings cliff is a great place to stay. 1.It is a British style of living with good clean rooms, a private sit out area and huge bathrooms. 2.The location is also an advantage as it is away from the otherwise crowded Ooty and actually on a cliff. 3.

Word of caution - sometimes the food is really heavy and hence ensure the spread accordingly. 5.The BEST PA... Read more
